Mission Statement

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is the university's designated office for formally identifying and determining eligibility for disability-related accommodations. UNLV is committed to providing equal access to its academic programs and services for students who experience disabilities, temporary injuries, pregnancy, and other concerns related to Title IX. The DRC was established to support students and to provide assistance with college learning through the provision of academic adjustments, accommodations, auxiliary services, and advocacy.

Our goal is to provide students with effective accommodations based on law and current best practices and to promote individual growth and self-determination.

Confidentiality and the DRC

Information regarding a student's disability diagnosis provided to the DRC is considered confidential and cannot be released to individuals or agencies outside the university without a student’s signed consent. Disability Records are covered under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Requests to release disability information must be in writing. The DRC release form available below is for student requests. Personally identifiable disability documentation is maintained by the DRC and kept separate from the student’s other academic records.
